The journey to a better public transport future

The next big step for MyCiTi is Phase 2A, a multi-year project to provide direct, scheduled, safe, affordable public transport to more than 30 communities along the city’s busiest transport corridors - extending from Khayelitsha and Mitchells Plain to Wynberg and Claremont.

It forms part of the City's vision to connect all residents to work, school, service and leisure opportunities through integrated, quality public transport that will benefit generations to come, and is funded by national government and City rates.

Trunk or "main" routes will operate via Govan Mbeki Road and form the foundation of services, travelling along dedicated bus lanes where possible and serving stations along the way for safe, easy route transfers. This will enable a significant time saving for commuters and create new opportunities for access to work, school and leisure.

The work required to accommodate Phase 2A will also help revitalise areas all along the corridor through road and intersection upgrades, landscaping, wider pavements and improved street lighting for pedestrians and cyclists, signage, street furniture and public art. Together, these improvements will benefit the local economy, attract development and create new business opportunities.

Connecting residents to work, school and recreation

Dedicated lanes for rapid transport

Dedicated lanes to reduce travel time, plus direct routes from suburbs to popular destinations and loca, areas routes run in partnership with existing operators. 

Stops and stations

 Open and closed stations in the middle of the road for ticketing facilities and to easily and safely transfer from one route to another.

Walking and cycling

Wider, safer pavements and pedestrian walkways and cycling infrastructure along trunk routes. 

Easy access and connections

Universal design for passengers with special needs including those with wheelchairs and prams, and easy connections to other public transport modes. 

Promoting economic activity

Creating jobs during construction and permanent jobs once services start operating, attracting new business in upgraded areas along the footprint. 

Transforming neighbourhoods

Improved lighting, road upgrades and landscaping including street furniture to transform areas, improving quality of life, development and business. 

Planned Trunk Routes

The concept design for the main routes and stations connecting Phase 2A were approved in 2016 and a separate, outstanding portion in 2019. This followed extensive public participation in 2015 with all affected communities. Phase 2A builds on many lessons learnt from Phase 1 and will benefit many, many more passengers from areas including Mitchells Plain, Lentegeur, Phola Park, Khayelitsha, Nolungile, Gugulethu, Crossroads, Manenberg, Hanover Park, Philippi, Nyanga, Ottery, Plumstead, Diep River, Strandfontein, Claremont, Wynberg, Constantia and Hout Bay.

What's Next?

Construction

Development of the corridor will take several years and construction is under way being implemented in various work packages.

Public Comment

The public are invited to find out more and comment on various proposals and changes required in order to accommodate Phase 2A.
